The Parent's Dilemma: Homeschool or Public School?

The Parent's Dilemma: Homeschool or Public School?

Parent's Question: We have a 4-year-old son who is starting school next year. I am getting all sorts of advice from my family and friends. All the choices can seem overwhelming at times. Public school, Christian school, private secular school and even home schooling are on the table. How do I know what is best for my child?

Mom says: Schooling in the 21st century is an adventure which requires great parental courage and discernment. Many of us were raised by parents who chose the local public school option before their kids were even born and never had cause (or opportunity) to revisit the issue. Today, parents are faced with so many options and choices that many parents are fearful of making the wrong decision.
